, the united states, britain and even in your own country. they say it's no joke. mr. rafsanjani said-- former president-- no joke could hurt iran. iranian business people say this is no joke, it could hurt iran. >> ( translated ): did you take what mr. rafsanjani says seriously? >> rose: i should not take mr. rafsanjani seriously? >> ( translated ): but have you? did you? >> rose: yes. >> ( translated ): very good. which says that there's freedom in iran to say what they want. so, you know, there's no such restrictions on what people can say in iran. i believe in responding to your question that those who resorted to the sanctions really felt that they had no other alternative, are unable to explore other alternatives and despite mr. rafsanjani's statement, the reality on the ground about sanctions does not change. naturally there are people who... with different opinions on the question of sanctions, but in the end of the day, the reality about our nation is that the it believes that sanctions is old-fashioned and a policy that belonged to decades ago. now, should there be any hesitation abo
prisoners in the world. here in the united states, there are 2.5 million. can i request the judiciary here in the united states to show leniency and i would, in fact, seize this opportunity here and ask the judicial body of the united states, judicial leniency, in the case of the 2.5 million prisoners in this country. they have spouses. they have mothers, children, parents. many are young. >> larry: we'll have more with the president of iran right after this. my name is...peggy. callyou have problem?dit. peggy? ok, i've been waiting for fifteen minutes for someone to pick up. you're tenacious like bull. i like. please hold. no, no, so pretty. anncr: want better customer service? switch to discover, where you can talk to a real person in less than a minute. you could switch for great gas mileage or seats that flip and fold with one hand. you could switch for up to 600 highway miles on a single tank of gas. or the hundred-thousand mile powertrain warranty. over a thousand people a day are switching to chevy. they're not just trading in, they're trading up. qualified lessees can get
sides, actually, has something to do with making it difficult to manage? in the united states, there are many, many americans who still perceive china as an enemy in a very, you know, old fashioned sense of being an enemy. and they think about vietnam and the vietnam era and all of that, uh, and the communist revolution and so on. and maybe in china, as well, the perception of the united states as being the enemy, with all of those years of propaganda that were disseminated. so is there a legacy thing, and is there anything we can do about that? >> i think legacy plays into it, and in particular, it tends to inform our campaigns, and in sometimes unhelpful ways, because a lot of those issues are seized upon in the course of campaigning for presidents for the presidency. and candidates often adopt a harder line during the campaign, and then they're sort of saddled with that when they come into government. we've seen several administrations have to do a little tacking back after they come into office. but yeah, i think the history informs our campaigns, informs the rhetoric as p
commitment to help these two struggling societies out of a terrible mess. the united states, i think can be faulted for its view that it's really up to the parties themselves to solve this. i think it's clear, now, that they cannot do this without strong intervention led by the united states, which has played such an active role. even that will not be enough to make lasting peace, as you suggest. there has to be a commitment to peace from the israeli people and palestinian people. at the moment, while they support and want peace, they don't believe it's possible. their support for official peace diplomacy is critical to succeed. >> if they are to support official peace diplomacy, i get the impression that their enthusiasm for that has to start at the grassroots level. to what extent do you see that playing a role in the process? >> i think it's playing a greater role now. i hope it is, because both the palestinian leadership and the israeli leadership have proved themselves quite incapable of making the necessary massive changes. they will do so, however, if there is a strong impulse fro
in the united states of america. there's about 0,000 meshes studying in china. you know there are 300 million people learning to speak english? >> rose: 300 million people in china? >> in china. there are people learning to speak chinese also, but small numbers. also growing number, but still rather small. the point is, america really does not understand china well enough. >> rose: we continue this evening with a look at mongolia and a conversation with its prime minister, sukhbaatar batbold. >> this is a good time and especially with given strength and advantages we have like rich mineral resources and strong neighbor... china is a market and opportunity and is emerging market i think with this tree sort of big advantages, mongolia has got a strong possibility to develop and now we have the challenge and especially for my government we have a coalition government and how do we deal with these advantages and also the certain difficulties or challenges which might come from the mineral development, this would be the issue for us. >> rose: china and mongolia next. words alone aren't enough. our
hwa is here. he is the chairman of the china united states exchange foundation. it aims to build greater understanding between the world's two largest economies. he is the former chief executive of hong kong, he has a long, close tie with the chinese leadership. he is currently vice chairman of the national committee of the chinese people's political consultant conference, the mainland's top political advisory body. i am very pleased to have him back on this program. welcome. >> thank you, i'm very happy to be back. >> rose: there are many more things i could have said but you are a firm believer that the united states and china have to be vigilant in making sure this crucial relationship maximizes its potential. >> yes. >> rose: and avoids any misunderstanding. >> yes. well, charlie, to start with, you know, obviously i want china to succeed being chinese and being a chinese person. i want the country to succeed, but on the other hand, i lived here for nine years in this country i built a family here, i entered a business here all in new york for seven of the nine years i was he
foreign policy planners. the united states, i think, under the obama administration understands much better need to build coalition which was already evident during the bush administration time, but the obama foreign policy said very clearly that it must be multilateral i it must take into account the existence of problems with which the united states with all of its assets. >> rose: does that offer opportunities for the united states and russia to cooperate in ways that it has not before? >> i think it does. and not only for the united states and russia but also for europe because the competition which we now witness in the world, it's an objective fact, you know. the desire to sell more goods, services, high tech products, intellectual products is measurable and the powerhouse of the world is moving to asia and the pacific. this is recognized by all available statistical data. but it's also civilization. the competition enters into the value. the values promoted by the western civilization are not accepted without question by others the asian civilization, latin civilization, afric
of our lifetime. >> a great day for the constitution of the united states and individuals being represented here because we know at the end of the day this case is going go to the united states supreme court in one form or another. >> reporter: even the judge agrees with that. he expects no matter how he ends up ruling on the case even when it goes to trial that it will be appealed by whomever loses and ultimately go to the u.s. supreme court. the states arguing this is federalism versus state rights as well as the constitutional rights of individual liberty. >> shepard: that is the argument. how did the government respond to the claims that the portions ever unconstitutional. in the department of justice says they have decades of court precedence. number one, that the u.s. government does have the power to dictate how federal funds are spent. one of the state's arguments is that forcing them to expand medicaid is usurping the state's power not to do so and also as far as an individual choosing not to buy health insurance which is a big part of the affordable care act they will
been shot down over the united states. >> let me ask you as the official from the pentagon, when there is a crisis like this, the military as a doomsday scenario already out there. when the first airplane dropped off the transponder, the faa contacted norad. 16's scrambledxteen immediately. the joint military command notified the fbi at 8:55. the airplanes in the air were in newe to stocp anything york. the ones that went up in washington after the pentagon was hit, would they have had the authority automatically to stop the airplanes? does the pentagon react in a moment like this with all the authority it already has? would it have stopped that jetliner from hitting another building in washington? >> you are talking about whether people moving in the frantic turmoil of the crisis like this would not interpret their rules of. 0 engagements00 selling them. .. . it shoots down an airplane full of civilians. -- you are asking if the rules of engagement would allow them to shoot down an airplane full of civilians. >> they would not have the authority without having been given the cod
. and here in the united states these days, i think a lot of people forget russia even exists. is that one of the reasons that russia is trying to reassert itself internationally, nina? >> i think it certainly is one of the reasons, although i would disagree with you that russia barely exists. i find that uh, in the american news cycle, or news and politics, it actually occupies a much larger position, which is a larger position than i think it should. but as far as russia is concerned, it's not enough. and therefore, russia really tries to be present on the world stage. >> so you really think it shouldn't be as dominant in the media as you see it is. >> i think it's one of the countries now, it's no longer a super-power and the fact that vladimir putin, former president and now uh, prime minister, wants to make it back into what it was before, uh, i think that's the reason, but i don't think the reality really, uh, in russia's present capabilities really should assure that. >> bill, why do you think russia's trying to reassert itself. >> i think russia itself is struggling uh, with its ow
become a more visible challenge to the united states in the last year. that is in large part thanks to its status as a weekly government country, one in which al qaeda is seeming to gain some momentum. the one response to this has been increased attention to yemen from the media, where we have seen all kinds of speculation about the future of yemen, including the possibility that yemen is poised to become the next afghanistan, a failed state. we have also seen an increased response from the u.s. government, which has made counter-terrorism one of the pits of its engagement with yemen and one of the central elements of its overall policy with yemen more broadly. whether counter-terrorism should be the pivot of u.s. policy in yemen and if it is, what kind of counter-terrorism policy is most appropriate? the country faces an extraordinary range of challenges and where by all accounts -- by many accounts, the number of al qaeda in the country remained relatively low art very important questions for u.s. policy-makers. the reason why the yemen working group at the u.s. institute of peace
the oval office this week seven years after the united states invaded iraq. he said the american combat mission has ended and he has kept his promise to the american people. >> this was my pleasure to the american people as a candidate for this office. last february, i announced a plan that would bring our combat brigades out of iraq by redoubling our efforts to strengthen their security forces and support its government and people. that is what we have done. >> when dan harris past secretary gates if the war was worth it, secretary gates said it remains to be seen. was it worth it? >> no. >> charles? >> i am more humble and making a judgment. i go with secretary superdelegates who was there in many stages of the war. he says history will judge when the korean armistice was assigned. the majority of americans thought the war was not worth it. i think the judgment of history today is probably different and i think if iraq, if, if iraq to establishes a democracy and begins a trend of democratization, history will say it was. if it doesn't, history will say it wasn't. >> 3400 americans wer
. ♪ >> president obama spoke to the nation from the oval office this week nearly 7.5 years after the united states invaded iraq. the american combat mission is ended he said and he kept his promise to the american people. >> this was my pleasure to the american people as a candidate for this office. last february, i announced a plan that would bring our combat brigade out of iraq while redoubling our efforts to strike in iraq's security forces and support the government and people. that is what we have done. >> went dan harris of abc news asked defense secretary gates about this, he said it remains to be seen. i will ask you a series of questions about the war. was it worth it? >> no. >> charles? >> i am a little more humble in making a judgment. i go with secretary superdelegates who was there in many stages of the war. he says history will judge when the korean armistice was signed for the majority of americans thought the war was not worth it. i think the judgment of history today is probably different and i think if iraq establishes a democracy that becomes an example for the rest of the middl
of all of the united states congress when i say to all of you, thank you. i also want to glate commander hill and the hundreds of bikers who participated in yet another successful legacy run. all told you raised more than $360,000 for families of service members who have fallen in the line in the years following the terrorist attacks of september 11, 2001. your efforts serve as a reminder of our shared resolve as a country to never forget 9/11 and keep pace with the heroes that lost their lives that day often in the hopes that others might live. those memories don't fade, and these colors don't run. we honor the sacrifice of our 9/11 heroes today, tomorrow, always. thank you. thank you. thank you for the work you are helping to improve veterans access to the quality health care that they deserve. i was proud to work with the legion last year to stop a severely misguided plan to stop a practice of building service members for combat injuries. insurance companies don't send men and women into combat and our nation does, and our nation should take responsibility for that momentous decision.
with the united states government did principally was to send out the fbi to try to find people you could identify as perpetrators so that they could be captured and prosecuted. what you hear from all of the discussion and is very important for people to focus on is that this was a different case. this was not about going out to find people who did it to punish them. we expected further attacks. there was enormous uncertainty. this was a major blow on the homeland. unlike the first world trade center bombing, it was successful. it caused us to completely rethink the terrorism danger. terrorists have traditionally gone after small targets like the ticket counter in an airport or blowing up a school bus. this was the first successful attack of terrorism of mass destruction. in what was the single most important decision he made as president, he said the purpose of our reaction to 9/11 was to prevent the next attacke. no president of the united states had ever reacted to a terrorist attack by saying that the purpose of the united states was to prevent the next terrorist attack. that was an enormously
to be acting under the direction of foreign terrorist groups. to be sure overall the united states is far better prepared to confront the terrorist threat than we were nine years ago. since 9/11 we have created new security and intelligence systems to detect, deter, and defend against terrorism most notably through the intelligence reform and terrorism prevention act that senator lieberman and i co-authored. we have expanded our intelligence gathering and information sharing systems. we have erased bureaucratic barriers and dismantled silos. we have learned to fight an enemy that wears no official uniform, that has no borders, and that represents no state in the troo digsal sense of -- traditional sense of the word. the results have been significant. terrorist plots both at home and abroad have been thwarted. but the threat has not been neutralized. indeed, it is evolving and ever-changing and in some ways more dangerous than ever. it is a chameleon by design. al qaeda has extended its tentacles into regional terrorist organizations causing threats to emanate from new locations like yemen
if you look at the successful record of immigrants to the united states, whether skilled or unskilled, documented or undocumented, across the last 200 years and particularly in the last 25 years and with the great renaissance of data that we now have at our disposal to analyze more clearly the impact of all types of immigration from 1990 forward, we realize that immigrants, again, skilled and unskilled, lawful and undocumented, bring to the effort of community building and business building and economy building something that is moderately intangible for now. if we work at it for a few more years it will be tangible and we will be able to quantify part of it. it's something that represents itself in generational achievement both for those immigrants who arrive, who form small businesses at a rate which is disproportionately higher than native-born citizens, for their children that in turn achieve at a level that is higher on average than the children of native-born citizens, not to disparage those who come from the united states or come from long lines of families that come from the u
.s. born workers in the united states from the 1990's to 2005 were better off because of the immigrant, both documented and undocumented, presence in the united states. their earnings were enhanced by about 2.7%. why? it's complicated and i'll send a link to the commission so you can look at the exciting charts and graphs and do that to your heart's desire. it comes down to a simple idea which is intuitive and you know it. the economy is not a fixed pie. when you expand the labor curve, a simple economist will say the price of labor goes down and we're all hurt. the more people that work here, the more people that are chasing jobs and we're all doomed. wrong. the expansion of the available labor force creates opportunities that did not exist before. you have innovation and entrepreneurialism that increases the actual size of small and medium-sized businesses. they consume and that expands the demand curve. you have a dynamic economy for 90% of u.s. born workers that enhances their wages. the other 9% got whacked up side the head with globalization and immigration and everything you can
the united states code. in july of this year, new york governor paterson signed similar legislation joining 48 other states that have dropped the r word. democrats and republicans have co-sponsored and agreed that the time has come to end discrimination against individuals with intellectual disabilities. every day, millions of children and adults have difficulty with tasks such as problem solving, decision making and communications because of intellectual disabilities. these americans are often ridiculed, ignored or abused by their peers. sometimes they are referred to publicly by insulting terms and treated as second class citizens. in particular, the term mental retardation has acquired a negative meaning and is used intentionally and unintentionally to deride and humiliate many of our citizens. h.r. 4544 is aptly named for a great woman from my home state, elizabeth a. connelly. she was elected to the assembly as the first woman from my district to be elected to public office. when she retired in 2000, she became new york's longest serving female legislator. she was a staunch advocate an
terrorists and the stakes could not be higher. this comes from a united states military commander in the united states. i'll jump across the border and tell you why the stakes could not be higher. this is pakistan in 2005. 74,000 people were killed in this earthquake. 18,000 were kids going to school. most of the kids that died were younger and female because they didn't have desks so when the walls started shaking and the roof came down they perished. there was 9,000 schools destroyed or rendered unusable. 1/2 million kids displaced out of school. in earthquake, they call it the coy mot that means this apocalypse. at first there was a very heroic effort. infer natio international community helped. after katrina red cross got 2,000,000 for help and for this earthquake red cross received 6 million dollars. the united states sent in helicopters that conductd the greatest air lift in the history of mankind. moved about 20 thousand on thes in the mountains to keep 1/2 million people a hive during the wintertime. it was very heroic and people were grateful. aid has dropped 70 percent a
